Antique Wedding

Hello Everyone, Linda here with another layout using the stunning Antique Bazaar Collection.

I found an old picture of my Grandparents wedding which was perfect for these lovely papers.

Starting with a piece of Kaisercraft Latte cardstock trimmed to 8×8″ I punched around the edge with a Martha Stewart PATP set and spritzed generously with Antique Gold Mist.

Next I took the Salvage paper and gutted it 2″ from the edge and stuck it behind with a glue runner.


In my last layout, I had torn the written edge of Restore as I loved the message, replacing it with Unearth so this time I used the leftovers from both to create a square 7×7″ to placed in the centre. My photograph is trimmed to 5×4″ and mounted onto Latte cardstock with a small border, then added to the top of the square. Another leftover piece of Unearth was used to cut a clock using a Tim Holtz die which was placed to the right with a full clock face from the remaining piece of Salvage.


Having got the basis of my layout, it was time to think of embellishments so I experimented with the Decorative Foliage Die. The first I spritzed with Antique Gold Mist, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heated, the effect was quite nice and made it looked aged – as above.

Next I tried UTEE (Ultra thick embossing powder) which gave a more glossy dimensional effect – see below – I think I preferred this one, although coating with Crystal lacquer may achieve a similar result.


And of course flowers –


I used 3 different sized retro flower punches, sprayed with water then screwed up tightly.

Unravelled a little then threaded onto a brad – smallest to largest – they can be arranged into a tatty flower shape. Once dry, I sprayed with Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany added to a bottle with some white mica powder and also Antique Gold Mist. The smaller flower is only 4 layers.



Finally  I added a frame from the Collectables to highlight the bride and groom.


and of course some Stickles!

More inspirational designs to come from the team, come back soon to see.

Take care,
